What is the Best Technique You Have Found to Quickly Develop Putting Speed Control?

One great idea is to read Dave Peltz's book on putting.

One of the best insights I learned of recently was by Peltz in Golf Digest. He said a study was done on the top amateur players in national tournaments across the U.S. and it was found that on 30 foot putts, they would usually putt to within 2-3 feet all around the hole. But on the Tour, Shot Link statistics revealed that the pros were putting over 95% of their putts to stop 2-3 from the hole but BEHIND the hole, never short or to the side. That can change how you practice putting lag putts.

Another idea is to stand 20-30 feet from a hole and roll 5-10 balls to the hole bowling ball style to generate feel quickly.
